As Covid Deaths Hit Zero San Francisco Brings Back Force-Backed Muzzles
Woohoo! The holy sacrament of the virus cult is back!
San Francisco was one of seven Bay Area counties that announced Monday it would be reimposing a mask requirement for all indoor public settings following a rise in COVID-19 infections.
The Associated Press said the new restriction comes as public health officials struggle to contain “the highly contagious delta variant.”
“It is unfortunate we have to do this at this point in the pandemic. None of us wanted to be here,” said Dr. George Han, deputy health officer for Santa Clara County. “But the virus has changed.”
Sundari Mase, interim health officer for Sonoma County, said the delta variant accounts for roughly 95 percent of new COVID cases in the region.
“We are facing a much more aggressive and contagious opponent right now,” Mase said.
Government statistics show that 93 percent of San Francisco residents over the age of 65 are at least partially vaccinated (86 percent are fully vaccinated), while 84 percent of all residents over 12 are at least partially vaccinated.
COVID Deaths Hit … Zero
San Francisco is just one of numerous local governments across the country that has passed or is considering passing new restrictions, as average daily cases in the US have crept back up to 80,000, a figure not seen since February.
Fortunately, though the delta variant may indeed be a more contagious opponent, it’s also proving to be a less deadly one, as data show the rise in cases has not been accompanied with a corresponding surge in mortality. Nationally, average daily deaths remain near pandemic lows at about 350 (per the 7-day rolling average), about half of what it was in mid-April and about one-tenth of the pandemic peak reached in January.
This is particularly true of San Francisco, where COVID mortality has all but disappeared. In fact, the current 7-day rolling average COVID death count is zero.
